  • Superior Thyroid Artery Lab Report

    Title Anatomical variation of the superior thyroid artery and its relation to the external laryngeal nerve. Introduction The thyroid gland is the largest endocrine gland located in the anterior triangle of the neck. It consists of two lobes, right and left, connected by an isthmus in the middle. The thyroid gland is mainly supplied by the superior thyroid artery, the first branch of the external carotid artery, and the inferior thyroid artery, a branch of the thyrocervical trunk of the subclavian artery; and occasionally by the thyroidea ima artery, an infrequent branch of the arch of the aorta. The venous drainage of the thyroid gland is into the internal jugular vein through the superior and the middle thyroid vein; and by the inferior thyroid…

  • Coronary Artery Disease Case Study

    Coronary Artery Disease Levi Gatherwright Morehead State University Coronary Artery Disease Coronary Artery Disease, CAD for short, is caused by a buildup of plaque in the coronary arteries that supply the heart with oxygenated blood. The plaque (Atheroma) is a waxy like substance that consists of calcium, lipid compounds, and blood clotting compounds such as macrophages and fibrin. The buildup takes many years to accumulate; the plaque eventually swells the arterial wall restricting blood…

  • Animal Physiology Lab Report

    Introduction: The heart rate of an animal can be used as an indicator to identify when a stimulus evokes a reaction from the animal. Specifically in the case of humans’, there tends to be the cognitive ability to physically withhold a reaction from a stimulus and mask the involuntary reaction. However, the heart rate reacts immediately after a stimulus, and is not reigned in or controlled cognitively, so could the heart potentially be a true indicator of an individuals reaction to a stimulus?…

  • Advantages And Disadvantages Of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

    Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, or CPR, is an emergency procedure taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing for someone who is in cardiac arrest (“Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation”). Cardiac arrest is the sudden loss of blood flow from the heart’s spontaneous shut down (“Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation”). Some people think of the fake dummies used in CPR classes or learning about it at swim lessons. Some people think of Bee Gee’s song “Stayin’ Alive”, but there’s a lot more to…

    Arterial system of frog Blood vessels, which carry oxygenated blood away from heart to different part of the body, are called arteries. They constitute a system called arterial system. Truncus arterious gives two branches right aortic trunk and left aortic trunk. Each aortic trunk again divides into three branches- a) Carotid arch: it divides into – Lingual artery – it supplies blood to tongue and hyoid. Common carotid – it supplies blood to buccal cavity and brain. it consists swelling at the…
